Soakin' Up the Sun Surf Girl Card...Join us for Friday Sketch Challenge!

Hello Crafty guys and gals...Wow, I am amazed that I am able to post projects more than ever before this month.  In case, you all don't know yet, I am one of the DT's at MayzyArt Stamps and Mayzy asked me if we want to join the wonderful DT's of Friday Sketch Challenge in highlighting a project since she is one of their sponsors this week.  Since I love creating for Mayzy, I gladly participated using this wonderful MayzyArt image called "Marina."  Aww, isn't she adorable and so fun to color too.  They sent me the Sketch and this is what I came up with.  The image is colored with my Sharpie/ProMarker/Prismacolor markers.  I decided to go for a Beach Theme so, I die-cut the "sun" (both 4" using the proportional size and the real dial size which gave me the big and small sun die-cut I used in the front and inside my card) with my Cricut using Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I cut 2 different size circles with my MS Small Circle Punch to layer on top of the sun.  Next, I die-cut some waves using my Life is a Beach cartridge. I used 2 DP's here from my scraps (yes, I don't throw anything away...LOL).  For embellishments, I layered some Prima flowers and used some coordinating, colored brads.  I used the diamond Stickles (glitters) to highlight the water splashing, stamped the sentiment from Hampton Art and the stamped the scribbles from Fiskars onto the  waves.  And lastly, stitching all around.  I am so happy how bright, bold and summery this project turned out to be.  One of my favorite ones for sure.  If you dig this card, please leave a comment or follow my blog for more incredible creation in the future.  

Also, if you want to join the Friday Sketch Challenge, MayzyArt is giving away 5 digis to one winner.  Not only that, there's another fabulous sponsor that will be giving away a $20 gift certificate.  If you want more details, be sure to click on the link above and see their DT's and MayzyArt DT's inspiration cards for this Challenge.

I must admit that I've been lacking sleep for quite a few days now.  Have so many things to do and take care with at home, Church, family and of course the most important of all, talking to God and asking for His leading daily.  He has blessed me with His presence everyday and I could not ask for more.  He is my inspiration, for sure! Have an awesome weekend and hope to hear from y'all!
